subtle art-deco references, exciting shapes and
colours the fall collection will surely be a hit. The
salmon's and violet's are a reoccuring colour block
in this collection and rightfully so especially when
teamed with mushroom greys. The colour mixing
and stripes are enough to make marc jacobs shake
in his boots.

pre-fall collection with a colour palette that reflects
the spring/summer 70's palette of marc jacobs,
antonio marras and celine. The cuts are minimal and
some bold particularly those tiny shorts. What I
need to get my hands into are those two toned
leather gloves please.

Well colour me mustard, burgundy, aqua and
green! Diane von furstenberg is colour blocking.
This collection has been inspired by 1970's
american sportswear and what a refreshing

grown accustomed to from Furstenberg. The
collection is refined and restrained yet bold.

hang onto your purses ladies this is going to be a
bumpy ride! Lagerfield has evolved the spring/summer
colour palette from the monochromatic and metallic into
deep hues with exotic byzantine embelishments. A

ladies in my wardrobe, thank you karl!

this, karl lagerfield has suprisingly minimised any
application of his byzantine detailing actually there
is no sign of it in comparison to his womens
collection. The colour palette is very much the
key to this mens collection they are sophisticated
and subtle I am especially keen on the deep teal hues.

was originally commissioned by harrods to design
a range of hats and the label soon included a range
of accessories and well it has since blossomed into
a sixties influenced fashion label. kiely's autumn/
winter collection is simple and bold with babydoll
cuts and details, what appeals to me though is the
colour pallette mustard yellows and peachy oranges.
